Ha, ha. The truth hurts.I love pastries. I used to love those little white powdered doughnuts. Now when I see them, they look like poison. The way I feel is much better than the feeling of eating the sweets. They are like soda, once you get away from them for a while, you don't know what the attraction was. It could be that those of us who see significant improvement are "gluten insensitive" and the payoff is worth it, where some people are not gluten insensitive and don't see results enough to cause the change. After a month, I knew gluten free was for me.
"She went full on no wheat products at all, not just Gluten free." I wasn't aware there was a difference.
I read a biotech article a few weeks ago about a company developing a drug that allows celiacs to eat gluten. That would be cool. I would much rather see food companies and farmers going back to the old heirloom wheat, but that's not likely seeing how what they have now was bred for profit.
As for your wife and the sex drive thing..... maybe you could change your hair color or something. Grow a pony tail. IOW, it might not be the gluten......:whistling:
I am afraid we have been together so long, if I came home with a different hair color, her first call would be to one of those government hotlines asking they come and take my guns away. I can't think of anything I might do that would be more out of character.
I am no expert in the subject at all, I have seen gluten free bread, I just thought it was wheat that they had removed the gluten, maybe it is a different grain, don't know. In any case, going wheat free has helped my wife, she is back to her 95lbs (she never gained a lot of weight as she always swims, yoga, etc), but she did have a tummy that has pretty much gone away. She says her inflammation is almost nonexistent. She is big believer in the evil grain theory.
